Hi All,

I've created a form which has the Data Entry Mode set to Display All Data. If I make a copy of the form, I want to switch the Data Entry Mode to New Data Only. How do I do this? I saw a thread which said to right-click the form's background, and select Properties, but there is no Properties option in the right-click menu.

If you are in Base in the "Forms" section, click on the form, then menu Edit > Edit. Click on "Form Navigator" in the toolbar "Form Design".

If you are not in Base but have an external form, open the form. Then open toolbar "Form Design" and switch design mode on. Now the "Form Navigator" is enabled and you can use it.

Right click on the name of the form you want to change in that "Form Navigator" and click on item "Properties" of this context menu. The dialog page "Data" contains the settings, you are looking for. Make sure you really click on the name of the form itself and not on any form control name.
